it depends on the debate and what happens in the debate will depend on how president obama performs against him and how he comes after him. i think the president is lucky to have the unemployment numbers come out next week, after that first debate, rather than this week, before the debate, because that would give him an opening. we have seen the debates take unusual turns in the past. president ford liberated poland when debating, you remember, and jimmy carter said he talked about nuclear policy with amy, and ronald reagan said there you go again, and it changed it for ronald reagan. >> talk about that fight night. many think because of where romney is it is a make or break moment for him. i love to hear the commentators fall over themselves to compliment each other for once on the campaign trail. you have mitt romney saying the president is obviously a very eloquent, gifted speaker, david axelrod says i think the invasion of normandy took less preparation than romney putting into the debates. let's get real for a moment. who is the better debater really? >> they're both mediocre debaiters
